The Bible: What’s New?
There’s nothing new about the Bible. It’s as old as the first creation of God. But wait! Do you know what is the first creation of God? Now that’s something new. That’s a secret. But do you want to know this secret? Is it so important to you and your life? Don’t you want to know things that have direct relevance to your life? That would be more like it, right? There are many secrets in the Bible revealed (see, they’re not secrets anymore) by God.
The Bible is replete with so many secrets of life, of good life, of treasures and riches, secrets of science, knowledge and philosophy. The Bible is the whole history, religion, politics and economics of the world. It is a compendium of all kinds and types of literature, poetry and stories --- romance, adventure, science, espionage, patriotism, suspense, war, drama, tragedy, comedy; literature and books on politics, economics, agriculture, technology, medicine, society, astronomy, physics, biology, you name it, you have it.
Yes, that’s the Bible for you. It is a complete book of life, from the beginning to the end and even beyond. If you don’t have a bible yet, get one, buy, borrow or rent (why not, there’s rent a car, rent a copying machine, why not rent a bible?); but don’t steal one, that’s one of the bitter secrets in the bible. If you have a bible already, read it again and try to discover the many secrets there that you miss when you first or last read it. Incidentally, when was the last time you read it, and why did you read it? Maybe for your term paper, or to prepare for a TV quiz show, or to pass time and get to sleep, especially if you’re insomniac. Well at least, in the last case, you got medical relief, although the wrong way. It’s a pity, because if you have just spent more time understanding and reflecting on what you have read, you might have discovered a permanent and lasting cure to your insomnia and other maladies.
Yes that’s one of the secrets of the Bible; it’s like a medicine cabinet full of medical drugs for all kinds of sickness and pains. These medicines are available free and more than enough for everybody; they don’t need doctor’s prescriptions and have no side effects. You want some samples, get a bible, and open it on Luke 9:1 and Luke 10:19, Proverbs 17:22.
Those are very powerful Word of God; claim and possess them. Many terminal and near death cases have been cured because they claimed and possessed the Word of God. Take look at the hemorrhaging for twelve years who spent all her money yet no doctor was able to cure her; but at a touch of the edge Jesus’ cloak, viola, instant cure (Luke 8:43-48, Mark 5:25-34, Matthew 9:20-22).
The Bible is the book of the impossible; of things that science cannot explain. You want proof? Can the science of aerodynamics explain how a bumblebee can fly with its huge body and very small wings? But the Bible did, (see Matthew 17:20, Matthew 21:21, Luke 17:6). See, the bumblebee has its faith in its small wings, God gave them wings to fly, so the bumblebee believes and flies as it pleases.
The Bible is the book of prosperity, of good future, of complete joy, of victorious life, of hope . . . of the desires of your life.
Read and read and read the Bible; discover the secrets that God has revealed to all His creation. Every time you read it there’s always something new that you have not discovered the last time you read it. The Bible is an exhaustible source of knowledge and wisdom`
For those who have a bible already, read it once more, then lend it to those who have none, to your friends, your neighbors, your classmates, your officemates, your bosses, your subordinates; lend it to your espouse and children, and sisters; lend it to your enemies, to your in-laws, especially mother-in-law, to anybody who has none. After you have lent it to somebody, tell him/her not to return it but to pass it on somebody else and buy another one for his/her own. You also should buy your own new Bible, read it again and you will be surprised that you have been discovering new things you failed to see in your old Bible.
Every day you read the Bible is always a new day, a new life, a new beginning, a new personal relationship with the Lord.
The Bible is the book of life, the living bread, the living water. Read and claim, John 6:5, John 4:10, John 7:38, Revelation 7:17.
Have a great day with the Lord!
